Photographer Kaylyn Messer was browsing Facebook recently when she learned that there was a large ice circle in the river close to her home. She grabbed her camera, jumped into her car, found the circle, and shot a series of beautiful photos.

A drone pilot crashed his camera drone into Seattle’s iconic Space Needle on New Years Eve, and they may now be facing charges.

The Wacom riding owl in the video above may be the best photo retouching accessory I’ve ever seen. Something tells me this little guy doesn’t come included with a new Wacom tablet.

This is mind blowing when you really think about it. HyperDrive, a product created specifically to add ports back to the newest version of Apple’s MacBook Pros, has raised nearly $1.6 million from over 17,000 people desperate to undo one of Apple’s biggest hardware goofs to date.

Struggling to understand your love life (or lack thereof?), this funny little photography meme helps explain things in terms us photo nerds understand: camera lenses.

2016 ended in a most fitting fashion for the new way I am trying to earn a living as a freelance photographer.

Photographer Timothy Joseph Elzinga was woken up by his 2-year-old at 1:30 a.m. last Friday when he noticed what looked like colorful auroras dancing in the night sky. After shooting a beautiful set of photos of what he saw, he learned that it was actually a phenomenon called “light pillars.”

Film emulation and photo sharing company VSCO confirmed today that they are shutting down their New York City office and laying off the staff there in order to “centralize” their workforce at the company’s headquarters in Oakland, CA.

Yesterday morning, the company behind the ‘throw-and-shoot’ Lily Drone announced that they would be shutting down despite raising $34 million in pre-sales and $15 million in private funding. But their press release left one thing out: they’re also being sued by the San Francisco district attorney’s office.

Given my interest in lifelong learning and skill-development, I often ask people which new skills they’re looking to learn. The most common response? “I want to be a better photographer”.

So whether you’re a budding photojournalist looking toward a career behind the lens, or just a hobbyist looking to take better shots on your next trip, I’m hoping you’ll find something useful here!

One hundred and nineteen dollars. That’s it. That’s all you need to open a door to a world of photography previously known only to the most extreme DIYers and commercial photographers for whom purchasing decisions are usually made for them by client requests.
